Disaster Leadership Team’s Response in 2017

As hundreds of thousands of people continue to recover from the numerous disasters of 2017, our hearts are with each leader who is lending a hand in helping their community members find a new normal. DLT Annual Report 2017

Our team is currently assisting community leaders in 13 counties in Texas, and two in Kansas. Some of the biggest challenges the leaders face is simply getting people together. And although that doesn’t sound like a difficult task, it has been incredibly challenging in Texas since the geographical area affected was so widespread. As disaster recovery organizations are spread thin, it has also been difficult to find long-term resources to help repair and build homes. Several organizations have come to the aid of these communities, but if you have been considering volunteering, now is a great time to do so. For information about volunteer opportunities, please visit the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD).
